Stella, NSW

Homes+ (Australia) - - STYLE & DECORATE -

The ve­ran­dah of Stella and Michael’s coastal home is a favourite spot for their fam­ily to re­lax and en­ter­tain. “It’s a shady area so is per­fect for those hot days,” says Stella – and the space has the added bonus of views of nearby wa­ter. A sanded-back tim­ber ta­ble and old deck chairs with grey and white striped cov­ers help give the out­door room a com­fort­able yet in­for­mal vibe, pro­vid­ing a great place for a casual lunch or din­ner. A built-in screen adds an el­e­ment of pri­vacy while still al­low­ing in light and views of the gar­den. The screen is soft­ened by tall pot­ted plants and a few hang­ing pots as well as the small ver­ti­cal wall gar­den po­si­tioned be­hind the ta­ble. Fairy lights strung across the ceil­ing add sparkle and soft light once the sun goes down. “We of­ten have din­ner out here with friends,” says Stella, “and there’s space for the kids to play here, too.”
